Review: Orion Nebula on Android (RPG Grinding Meets Overhead Space Shooter)

Ah, Orion Nebula, a game that was recommended to us by one of our readers in the comments on our Plasma Sky review, is finally getting the review treatment. First of all, Orion Nebula is HARD and requires a lot of replaying the first few levels that you can open over and over and over […]


Nokia Lumia 1020 Announced (AT&T Exclusive, For Now)

Nokia is not new to cell phones, they have been around for awhile. For some, they were the defacto standard for a cell phone (I was like that for years, only Nokia phones). With the advent of Windows Phone, Nokia has been pushing hard to get back into the cell phone world in a better […]

Hardware Review: Nokia Lumia 521 Windows Phone 8

When Microsoft came out with Windows Phone 7, then 8, they changed the whole layout of the OS (much like they did with the desktop version of 8) and as someone that came from using Windows Mobile 2002, then 2003 and then 6.5, I can honestly say it is about time they got it right.

Review: Plasma Sky for Android Using the JXD S7300 Tablet

Overhead shooters have been reported as a dying breed around here for quite awhile but truth is, they are seeing a slight resurgence in the gaming world.  Innovation is returning to the genre, no longer are developers simply relying on nostalgia to garner a purchase and download when they release a retro styled shooter.   Spikepit […]

New Overhead Scrolling Shooter, Plasma Sky, Blasts Onto Google Play and iTunes

Overhead scrolling shooters, once a proud genre with their close cousing- the side scrolling shooter, is almost an endangered species of gaming. Sure, we get the occasional retro release from Capcom (how many times can fans be expected to buy yet another copy of any of the 194x series?), but fans want new original action. […]

Review: Sector Strike by Clapfoot Inc on the Zeepad 7″ ICS Android Tablet

Taking two different genres and mixing them together has been around for a long time, we have seen RPG’s mixed with Bejeweled, action titles and now we have another entry in the short list of side scrolling shooter RPG’s available.  Sector Strike brings 2.5D game play to Android gamers along with a fair bit of […]


Review: Raiden Legacy on JXD S601 Android Hand Held

Back in the day, we took games like Raiden for granted, the genre was overpopulated so to speak, there were tons of scrolling shooters available on all platforms.  Even with all of that competition, the quality of Raiden was able to stand out and spawned quite the following with fans.  Now, years later, Raiden has […]

alpha squadron title

Alpha Squadron Hits Google Play

3D space shooters are something that we love here at Gaming on Batteries ever since we got hooked playing Freespace 1 and 2 oh so many years ago.  While not as mind shatteringly cool looking as Interplay’s classic title, Alpha Squadron is still unique and bears a striking resemblance to a few Star Wars ships. […]


The Drowning for iPad Exclusive Screenshots

We love to bring exclusive screenshots to our readers here on the “Gaming on” sites and our readers have responded quite well to them so we will continue doing it, rather than running the same old pr supplied pics of upcoming games.  The Drowning is a new take on the First Person Shooter genre, well, […]


Old School Overhead Scrolling Shooters Return with Raiden Legacy on iOS and Android

The high watermark for overhead shooters has been the Raiden series for years and now, Raiden Legacy brings four of the Raiden titles to iOS and Android. In this package gamers get, Raiden (the original), Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2 and Raiden Fighters Jet (some SNK naming going on there?).

Review: Absolute Defense by Defcon Studio on the Zeepad 7 Inch ICS Tablet

Sidescrolling, hard as nails, shooters are almost as rare as their overhead counterparts (check out Rimblade for another retro title in this “revival” of sorts).  Initially, Absolute Defense was not expected to be much, there are a lot of scrolling shooters on Google Play that simply don’t “click” with me and are quickly uninstalled from […]


Review: Rimblade by Gremlin Games Mobile on Android Using the Zeepad 7″ ICS Android Tablet

Anyone that grew up playing games in the late 80′s and early 90′s will recognize the style that Gremlin Games Mobile are going for in their title, Rimblade.  Overhead scrolling shooters are rarer than they used to be (at one time, overhead/sidescroll shooters were more popular than action adventure games).
